Hope and Health Lecture Series

Education and Minority Health

April 21, 7 p.m.

Join the Intergenerational Schools for April's conversation in our virtual series on intergenerational learning. For National Minority Health Month, our board chair Dr. Molly Wimbiscus will moderate a discussion with Dr. Lolita McDavid, Medical Director, Child Advocacy and Protection, UH Cleveland Medical Center, and Waverly Willis, executive director of The Urban Barber Association (TUBA) and minority men's health advocate.

We'll be exploring how education that is rooted in social-emotional learning and trauma-informed practice influences health outcomes for children.
